Innovo Property Group's multistory industrial development in Long Island City has secured a $435-million refinancing

Innovo Closes on $435M Refi of Multistory Industrial in Long Island City

Innovo Property Group (IPG) closed on a $435-million loan from Starwood Property Trust and JPMorgan. The funds provided will be utilized to refinance IPG’s new multistory industrial development, The Borden Complex, located at 23-30 Borden Ave. in Long Island City.  

“The Borden Complex will be a draw to tenants looking to service Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens with great efficiency,” said Andrew Chung, founder and CEO of IPG. “The industrial sector has continued to outperform other asset classes and given the optimal location and unique design features of this property, we expect this complex to be in high demand.”  

The 23-30 Borden site was acquired for $75 million by IPG in January 2019 with Atalaya Capital Management and Nan Fung Group. Following its acquisition, the partners demolished the FreshDirect warehouse that previously occupied the site and completed plans for the new development. Construction is expected to be finalized in 2024.
